Since 2006, one of the first stops American Idol contestants would make after the show is the Wintergarden at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital, where they perform for patients, families, and staff These performances, which are also simulcast to patient rooms, bring joy to our patients and their families. Idol contestants then visit patients who are unable to leave their rooms. This year, after the show’s final season, the 2016 American Idol, Trent Harmon Music, runner-up, La'Porsha Renae, and 3rd place finalist, Dalton Rapattoni, sang to an appreciative audience, signed autographs, and took photos with patients.

Lowering blood pressure goals for adults at high risk of cardiovascular disease could save tens of thousands of lives annually and reduce costs, according to a computer simulation by researchers at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. - ScienceDaily
Ms. McKenna's AP Biology and Mr. Newman's Anatomy/Physiology and Comparative Anatomy classes visited the Liberty Science Center to experience LSC's "Live From!" series. Together with Dr. Daniela Riser and Mrs. Bennett, the students watched a live surgery from New York City's prestigious NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. The surgery, conducted using the DaVinci Robot, involved removing a fibroid tumor from a young woman's uterus. The students were able to interact with the surgeon, asking questions about the procedure and about becoming a surgeon throughout the surgery. This is the fourth time Ms. McKenna and Mr. Newman have brought their classes to watch a "Live From!" surgery. It is certainly a highlight each year for the students. After the surgery and lunch, the students were able to tour the science center before returning to #SHS.

Much like high school and college, babies leaving the NICU are deserving of a celebration. Born prematurely, babies and their families spend several weeks to months in the NICU, enduring ups and downs, sleeplessness nights and plenty of uncertainty. So when families leave the NICU to go home, the nursing team at NewYork-Presbyterian/Lower Manhattan wanted to formalize the event and created the "NICU Graduation Program." Each baby is given a hat with a tassel, custom made name tag for their bed, a diploma with a gold seal signed by the physician and presiding nurse and to officially mark the occasion, each baby is photographed with their parents. All of these details are carefully crafted by the NICU nurses. Even though the program is only a year old, it’s been a raving success for both staff and patients and is unique the NYP/Lower Manhattan campus. Help us in celebrating these amazing nurses for going above and beyond for our tiniest of patients.

Every Wednesday, Sharon Ward-Miller shares the list of movies from the local Redbox with her patients on the self-injurious behavior unit at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Westchester. After their evening wrap up group, the patients discuss movies they would like to see for "Friday Movie Night" as well as the weekend, and what special snacks they’d enjoy. The next day after work, Sharon visits the Red Box kiosk to rent three different movies based on the group’s preference as well as appropriate content (monitoring content for violence, sex, and strong language). She then picks up snacks, such as hummus, celery, chips, etc – because you can’t watch a movie without a delicious and nutritious snack. This has been part of Sharon’s weekly routine for the past five years. The patients look forward to watching movies and snacking which enhances their leisure-activity experience. What inspired Sharon to go above and beyond for her patient - "I love movies and what better way to distract yourself for a brief time from the cares and worries of the day." Wishing Sharon a Happy Nurses Week – thank you for all that you do for our patients.
In continuing to share stories of nurses going above and beyond, today we highlight our amazing nurses from 5 Garden North at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center. Back in 2013, the nursing team learned about children in the Washington Heights and Inwood community who were spending the holidays away from their parents, as they had been incarcerated. Working with a local Chaplain, the nurses organized an "Angel Tree" where they purchased presents for children between the ages of six months and 16 years, presenting these gifts as if they were from the parents themselves. All of the children were invited to a holiday party organized by the nurses to celebrate the season and receive their gifts. Almost three years later, this tradition lives on with the number of children receiving gifts almost doubling. This effort has created waves, inspiring several other departments within our hospital to get involved as well. Happy Nurses Week to our incredible care team at 5 Garden North!

Joe Makara has been a nurse in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital since 2002. When he first arrived he worked alongside a music therapist who brought happiness to patients through song, which instantly resonated with Joe, being skilled at the guitar himself. Joe was saddened along with the rest of the department, though, when the music therapist left. Recognizing the impact that music had on his patients, Joe campaigned for the unit to purchase a guitar and his wish was granted. Now Joe plays guitar for all of his patients and their families, bringing a piece of his personality from outside the workplace into his job at NYP. Joe says that his favorite part of playing is being able to put a smile on his patients’ faces during what could otherwise be a very scary time. He has his own song bank, but is always happy to take requests if his patient has a favorite. #HappyNursesWeek to all of our nurses like Joe, going above and beyond for our patients.
Today Addie Ruffins is celebrating her first Mother's Day with her miracle baby, Luke. Addie didn't know if she would ever be able to partake in Mother's Day after suffering from two miscarriages due to problems with her cervix. After extensive research, she made her way to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospitalz where Dr. Annette Perez-Delboy performed an unusual procedure which would allow her to sustain her pregnancy. Today, Luke is now a thriving 7 month-old baby boy. Addie named her son Luke – after the author of the third Gospel in the New Testament who was also known as the beloved physician. “We consider Luke our third child and we adore the physicians whose expertise contributed greatly to his life. We are forever indebted to them for saving his life." – Addie.
We are excited to kick-off #NursesWeek with this post from Dr. Mehmet Oz where he talks about working along side some of the best nurses in the world - found here at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital! "Throughout my career, I've had the pleasure of working with and learning from some of the best nurses in the world, especially the amazing members of the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital team, who have helped save the lives of my patients for years. As we head into National Nurses Week, we're reminded of the fact that these men and women are the backbone of the medical community. We thank each and every one of you for everything that you do!"

We’re kicking off Stroke Awareness Month with the help of our patient Andrew Kampel who saw what could have been prevented, and had the courage to change his life. Suffering from one stroke is jarring enough, but to survive two within months of each other was a wake-up call for Andrew Kampel. It was in August of 2013 that Andrew had his first stroke. Leading up to that fateful day, the 48-year-old was experiencing headaches and was abnormally fatigued. He ignored the symptoms until he struggled to get his key in his apartment door. The noise woke up his neighbor who fortunately noticed something was wrong and immediately called 9-1-1. Andrew was taken to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital where he was diagnosed as having a massive stroke caused by a congenital hole in his heart and certain lifestyle choices. Under the care of Dr. Matthew Fink, he spent nearly two weeks in the hospital and then moved to Staten Island to recover at his mother’s home. As he was beginning physical and cognitive therapies, the headaches returned and Andrew suffered his second stroke in October. That’s when the reality of the situation really sunk in. Andrew knew he would need to make some major changes if he ever wanted to get back to his life before the strokes. Over the next three months, he went through vigorous physical, occupational, and speech therapy programs. He also made significant changes to his diet, cutting down on sugar, salt, fatty foods and alcohol. He also added at least two-hours of walking into his daily routine. Since his last stroke, Andrew has lost more than 80 pounds, regained full mobility and returned to his job as a litigation attorney in less time than predicted. He lost peripheral vision, but that hasn’t slowed him down. And he continues to check in regularly with Dr. Fink and his cardiologist, Dr. John Barnard to stay healthy. Andrew is now dedicated to spreading the word about stroke prevention in the hopes that others will make changes before it’s too late.

This week, we celebrated the retirement of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital's longest standing employee of 64 remarkable years of service, Ann Ametta. A New Jersey resident, Ann came to NYP in 1951 to work as a receptionist in Harkness Hall at the nurses residences. For nearly her entire career, Ann has stayed within the real estate department, helping employees and medical residents find housing and transition into their new jobs at the hospital. She credits the longevity of her career to the amazing and kind people at NYP and her passion for interacting with people. Ann hopes that people will remember her as "thoughtful and kind," and although many of her colleagues are afraid work-life won’t be the same without her she assures them that they will be, “things always change but they will still be okay." Ann gladly states that she wouldn’t change a thing about her time at the hospital. She never got into a disagreement with another employee, "not even once!" The NewYork-Presbyterian family will miss you, Ann, but we wish you the happiest retirement. Help us thank Ann for a lifetime of service in the comments below.
